Nvidia is still keeping schtum on the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080, but we might have just got our first look at the graphic card’s design.
A user on Chiphell (opens in new tab) (thanks, Videocardz (opens in new tab)) has posted leaked images which allegedly show a prototype of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080. The card features a striking new fan design, and is markedly different from the Founder’s Edition dual-fan design that Nvidia has previously produced.
Based on these photos, the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 could instead opt for a push/pull fan design, with a large heatsink in the middle. And while the card may look blue at a glance, it’s actually just the wrap of the silver metallic shroud around the card.
If the leaked images are real, then, the RTX 3080 will have to include a V-shaped PCB design.

The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 is likely to be powered by the company’s recently-announced Ampere architecture, along with 3rd-generation Tensor Cores. While we’re still waiting for Nvidia to officially announce something, the images could point to a release being closer than expected.
